80% are white wines with Sauvignon Blanc (SB) being the most common grape. Gruner Veltliner garnered two spots on the list. 80% are wines from outside the US (Austria, France, Italy, New Zealand and Spain), and are bargain priced because Americans don’t know the varietals. One of the two reds is perfect for summer quaffing as an aperitif. The other red is the ideal match for a summer dinner of BBQ chicken or meat. There's also one sparkling wine in the mix.
~ Quivira Alder Grove SB (California): this succulent wine even received a 90 point score from Robert Parker.
~ Mt. Beautiful SB (New Zealand): Great aromatics and a full-bodied flavor abound in this Kiwi wine.
~ Meinhard Forstreiter Kremser Kogl Gruner Veltliner (Austria): Mineral-driven, this Gruner is phenomenal for the price.
